“How Much??”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Maybe I am out of touch but when six of us were out in Paihia and we ordered 9 x fish (snapper battered) 2 x hot dogs & 3 x Chip and the bill came to $100.00 (excatly) I was shocked!
It wouldn't have been so bad if they had tasted good but the batter was removed by all of us due to the grease and the hot dogs were from the bad butcher...if we hadn't been travel at the time we would have gone back for a refund, pleasent staff I must admit...but no wonder at those prices.

“Tasty fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Unfussy seaside takeaway. Nice food at good prices. We both had fish and chips which was freshly cooked even though it was a quietnight.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We felt disappointed with our meal. After a long drive we decided FnC would tie us over for the night. What we got was an over cooked, oily & expensive meal. By the time we walked next door to our accommodation the oil had gone straight through the paper & all over my wife's top. Won't be returning
